I Think....

Jill, Joe Biden's wife moved her head so she could get some full on lip action. What do ya'll think?


Solo Gets Bout It...

Seems Solange really has no trouble tellin people about themselves. Solo told an anchor woman that her introduction was not professional and don't be talking about her and her family and her brother-in-law's business. See, it seems whatever she was all hyped about wasn't said on air and the anchor lady was rather confused. Anyhoo, they continue the interview but you could tell that Solo really wasn't feelin it and was givin rather tight and short answers. Ya'll know I love me some Solo but even I'm kinda like could you relax a bit Solange? Like we get it. You aren't your sister and we don't want you to be. You are prolly gonna have the number #1 album next week due to all of your media attention and letting the world know that you get drunk and you be fuckin and you'll beat a bitch down if they talk about your sister. However, could you just simma down a bit? Cuz your attitude, while its nice to see that you clearly don't give a fuck and you are free and easy wit it, might be your downfall....and you are still on the slow trek on your come up boo. Let's keep it all in perspective, mkay honey? Luh u bye.

To Watch The Video Click: And is it just me or does Solo talk like she just might have a lil touch of the Downs?

ANTM: Only Cuz Of Isis

So I haven't really discussed the new and upcoming season of America's Next Top Model. I was prayin I wouldn't want to watch it BUT of course Tyra done got me again. I have to watch to see the Tranny known as Isis. I'm sure you all know the back story...she was one of the models in the homeless photo shoot they did in one of the challenges last season and now she/he is a contestant this season. I want you all to watch Isis on the runway struttin her stuff. She is a bit much and I'm sure Tyra will tell her you walk down the runway, you pose and then you walk back. Right now, Isis walks down, up, back down, spins, twirls, back down, more spins and then freezes in a pose mid-runway. Yup, Isis is fierce ya'll and dammit to hell, I'll be watchin.


F.U. Please Speak On It

My girl Dee asked me to speak on the silliness that is the video below. This Hillary Clinton delegate is literally in tears and bumblin like a damn idiot talkin bout Hillary just gave a presidential speech. You see, after Hillary's speech 'endorsing' Barack Obama, her delegates were supposed to come to their senses and realize that Hillary can continue to help us all in other ways but now it is time to focus on how we can make a difference right now by voting for Barack. This broad sounds like a complete jackass and are those crimps in the front of her hair? No seriously, this bitch said that she is going to cast her vote for Hillary because she was asked to come as a Hillary Clinton delegate and she says Barack has two months for her to connect with him so that she'll vote for him in November. You know what bitch, he don't need your vote. Sit your ass down somewhere and play with all your Clinton buttons.

And speakin of Hillary, her speech was a good one but she is still bitter and it is obvious. She didn't really endorse Barack she just gave the speech she had to give cuz she has no choice. It's whatever tho, Barack will be fine without her sisterhood of the traveling pantsuits.

Fabulosity Of The Day: Jessica White

Would ya'll please look at my boo and tell me she's not a stunna! Luh me some Jessica! She's on the cover of Restless Style Mag, which I've never heard of, but they can thank this cover for makin me want to go find out who they are.

Kerry Washington Does Giant and Lakeview Terrace

The adorable and beyond pretty Kerry Washington did a hot spread in Giant Mag and just as I was coming across these photos, I also caught the trailer for her new movie with Samuel L. Jackson called "Lakeview Terrace". In the movie, Kerry is married to this white guy and they live next door to Sam who harasses them and also happens to be a cop so there is a whole lot they can do about it. I think this movie has been done before...didn't Ray Liota play a fucked up cop neighbor who was stalkin a dude's wife? I don't feel like lookin it up, but the point is, this movie is lookin kinda good....Sam does psycho scary man rather convincingly. In theaters September 19th.

The World As It Is Just Won’t Do — That We Have An Obligation To Fight For The World As It Should Be

Did you watch Michelle Obama last night? So poised, so elegant, simply stunning, and more than anything, she confirmed for us all what we already knew....Yes We Can!

As her mother watched her daughter, while holding back tears, this is the speech that said it all.

As you might imagine, for Barack, running for president is nothing compared to that first game of basketball with my brother Craig.

I can’t tell you how much it means to have Craig and my mom here tonight. Like Craig, I can feel my dad looking down on us, just as I’ve felt his presence in every grace-filled moment of my life.

At six-foot-six, I’ve often felt like Craig was looking down on me too — literally. But the truth is, both when we were kids and today, he wasn’t looking down on me — he was watching over me.

And he’s been there for me every step of the way since that clear February day 19 months ago, when — with little more than our faith in each other and a hunger for change — we joined my husband, Barack Obama, on the improbable journey that’s brought us to this moment.

But each of us also comes here tonight by way of our own improbable journey.

I come here tonight as a sister, blessed with a brother who is my mentor, my protector and my lifelong friend.

I come here as a wife who loves my husband and believes he will be an extraordinary president.

I come here as a Mom whose girls are the heart of my heart and the center of my world — they’re the first thing I think about when I wake up in the morning, and the last thing I think about when I go to bed at night. Their future — and all our children’s future — is my stake in this election.

And I come here as a daughter — raised on the South Side of Chicago by a father who was a blue collar city worker, and a mother who stayed at home with my brother and me. My mother’s love has always been a sustaining force for our family, and one of my greatest joys is seeing her integrity, her compassion, and her intelligence reflected in my own daughters.

My dad was our rock. Although he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in his early thirties, he was our provider, our champion, our hero. As he got sicker, it got harder for him to walk, it took him longer to get dressed in the morning. But if he was in pain, he never let on. He never stopped smiling and laughing — even while struggling to button his shirt, even while using two canes to get himself across the room to give my Mom a kiss. He just woke up a little earlier, and worked a little harder.

He and my mom poured everything they had into me and Craig. It was the greatest gift a child can receive: never doubting for a single minute that you’re loved, and cherished, and have a place in this world. And thanks to their faith and hard work, we both were able to go on to college. So I know firsthand from their lives — and mine — that the American dream endures.

And you know, what struck me when I first met Barack was that even though he had this funny name, even though he’d grown up all the way across the continent in Hawaii, his family was so much like mine. He was raised by grandparents who were working class folks just like my parents, and by a single mother who struggled to pay the bills just like we did. Like my family, they scrimped and saved so that he could have opportunities they never had themselves. And Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values: that you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond and you do what you say you’re going to do; that you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don’t know them, and even if you don’t agree with them.

And Barack and I set out to build lives guided by these values, and pass them on to the next generation. Because we want our children — and all children in this nation — to know that the only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work for them.

And as our friendship grew, and I learned more about Barack, he introduced me to the work he’d done when he first moved to Chicago after college. Instead of heading to Wall Street, Barack had gone to work in neighborhoods devastated when steel plants shut down, and jobs dried up. And he’d been invited back to speak to people from those neighborhoods about how to rebuild their community.

The people gathered together that day were ordinary folks doing the best they could to build a good life. They were parents living paycheck to paycheck; grandparents trying to get by on a fixed income; men frustrated that they couldn’t support their families after their jobs disappeared. Those folks weren’t asking for a handout or a shortcut. They were ready to work — they wanted to contribute. They believed — like you and I believe — that America should be a place where you can make it if you try.

Barack stood up that day, and spoke words that have stayed with me ever since. He talked about “The world as it is” and “The world as it should be.” And he said that all too often, we accept the distance between the two, and settle for the world as it is — even when it doesn’t reflect our values and aspirations. But he reminded us that we know what our world should look like. We know what fairness and justice and opportunity look like. And he urged us to believe in ourselves — to find the strength within ourselves to strive for the world as it should be. And isn’t that the great American story?

It’s the story of men and women gathered in churches and union halls, in town squares and high school gyms — people who stood up and marched and risked everything they had — refusing to settle, determined to mold our future into the shape of our ideals.

It is because of their will and determination that this week, we celebrate two anniversaries: the 88th anniversary of women winning the right to vote, and the 45th anniversary of that hot summer day when Dr. King lifted our sights and our hearts with his dream for our nation.

I stand here today at the crosscurrents of that history — knowing that my piece of the American dream is a blessing hard won by those who came before me. All of them driven by the same conviction that drove my dad to get up an hour early each day to painstakingly dress himself for work. The same conviction that drives the men and women I’ve met all across this country:

People who work the day shift, kiss their kids goodnight, and head out for the night shift — without disappointment, without regret — that goodnight kiss a reminder of everything they’re working for.

The military families who say grace each night with an empty seat at the table. The servicemen and women who love this country so much, they leave those they love most to defend it.

The young people across America serving our communities — teaching children, cleaning up neighborhoods, caring for the least among us each and every day.

People like Hillary Clinton, who put those 18 million cracks in the glass ceiling, so that our daughters — and sons — can dream a little bigger and aim a little higher.

People like Joe Biden, who’s never forgotten where he came from, and never stopped fighting for folks who work long hours and face long odds and need someone on their side again.

All of us driven by a simple belief that the world as it is just won’t do — that we have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be.

That is the thread that connects our hearts. That is the thread that runs through my journey and Barack’s journey and so many other improbable journeys that have brought us here tonight, where the current of history meets this new tide of hope.

That is why I love this country.

And in my own life, in my own small way, I’ve tried to give back to this country that has given me so much. That’s why I left a job at a law firm for a career in public service, working to empower young people to volunteer in their communities. Because I believe that each of us — no matter what our age or background or walk of life — each of us has something to contribute to the life of this nation.

It’s a belief Barack shares — a belief at the heart of his life’s work.

It’s what he did all those years ago, on the streets of Chicago, setting up job training to get people back to work and afterschool programs to keep kids safe — working block by block to help people lift up their families.

It’s what he did in the Illinois Senate, moving people from welfare to jobs, passing tax cuts for hard working families, and making sure women get equal pay for equal work.

It’s what he’s done in the United States Senate, fighting to ensure the men and women who serve this country are welcomed home not just with medals and parades, but with good jobs and benefits and health care — including mental health care.

That’s why he’s running — to end the war in Iraq responsibly, to build an economy that lifts every family, to make health care available for every American, and to make sure every child in this nation gets a world class education all the way from preschool to college. That’s what Barack Obama will do as President of the United States of America.

He’ll achieve these goals the same way he always has — by bringing us together and reminding us how much we share and how alike we really are. You see, Barack doesn’t care where you’re from, or what your background is, or what party — if any — you belong to. That’s not how he sees the world. He knows that thread that connects us — our belief in America’s promise, our commitment to our children’s future — is strong enough to hold us together as one nation even when we disagree.

It was strong enough to bring hope to those neighborhoods in Chicago. It was strong enough to bring hope to the mother he met worried about her child in Iraq; hope to the man who’s unemployed, but can’t afford gas to find a job; hope to the student working nights to pay for her sister’s health care, sleeping just a few hours a day.

And it was strong enough to bring hope to people who came out on a cold Iowa night and became the first voices in this chorus for change that’s been echoed by millions of Americans from every corner of this nation.

Millions of Americans who know that Barack understands their dreams; that Barack will fight for people like them; and that Barack will finally bring the change we need.

And in the end, after all that’s happened these past 19 months, the Barack Obama I know today is the same man I fell in love with 19 years ago. He’s the same man who drove me and our new baby daughter home from the hospital ten years ago this summer, inching along at a snail’s pace, peering anxiously at us in the rearview mirror, feeling the whole weight of her future in his hands, determined to give her everything he’d struggled so hard for himself, determined to give her what he never had: the affirming embrace of a father’s love.

And as I tuck that little girl and her little sister into bed at night, I think about how one day, they’ll have families of their own. And one day, they — and your sons and daughters — will tell their own children about what we did together in this election. They’ll tell them how this time, we listened to our hopes, instead of our fears. How this time, we decided to stop doubting and to start dreaming. How this time, in this great country — where a girl from the South Side of Chicago can go to college and law school, and the son of a single mother from Hawaii can go all the way to the White House — we committed ourselves to building the world as it should be.

So tonight, in honor of my father’s memory and my daughters’ future — out of gratitude to those whose triumphs we mark this week, and those whose everyday sacrifices have brought us to this moment — let us devote ourselves to finishing their work; let us work together to fulfill their hopes; and let us stand together to elect Barack Obama President of the United States of America.

Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.

Salute Your First Lady, Michelle Obama!

Monday, August 25, 2008


Let go already!!! Daaayum! On Wednesday, Hillary will release her delegates and ask them to support Barack Obama. What baffles me is why this is even necessary? I mean, your girl fought one hell of a fight and she lost. Shouldn't the DEMOCRATIC delegates, no matter who they were supporting originally, should have just united and support the candidate that won the primary and is now the Democratic candidate for president? Like what am I missing here?

McCain just released a new ad where this silly bitch who was a Clinton supporter has now vowed to vote for McCain. Where is the logic? That makes no fuckin sense. You would rather vote for a man who plans to continue to destroy this country just as his friend Bush did and watch the poor get poorer and the rich get richer - oh and according to this man you ain't rich if you ain't got more than $5 million in your bank account than vote for Barack who actually has many of the same beliefs and goals for this country as Hillary does? Why must people be such complete jackasses?

Clinton supporters who can't let go, unfortunately, will play a huge role in Obama's victory. Hopefully after Michelle breaks it down for them tonight and Barack speaks on it, they will get their shit together and realize that Barack is doing just what Hillary would have done....only better.

Watch this clip with my favorite politicker George Steph where he talks about the ridiculousness that are Hillary Supporters. Click: If It Works, I Would Suggest Using Your Brain. Thanks.

Politickin - Michelle Obama Kicks Off The Democratic Convention

Tonight, be sure your TV's are turned to any news channel at 10 PM EST - I'll be watchin ABC with my faves, Diane Sawyer, Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopolous - to watch the very first Black woman and future first lady, Michelle Obama tells us all why her husband, Barack Obama will be the next president of the United States. This morning I watched clips of her, her mother, and daughters get off of a private jet after landing in Denver. I kept thinking, I know she's used to all of this already but WOW, Michelle Obama is kickin off the Democratic Convention. Black women all over the world are going to be listening intently, in admiration and awe, while dying to have whatever fabulous ensemble she's been styled in, and thanking her over and over again for showing the world who black women are, what we can achieve, and how and why we LOVE our black men. Black men are going to be watching her with pride, thinking how beautiful, articulate, and passionate she is and how fortunate Barack is to have this extraordinary and beyond special woman at his side. They will see how black beauty can be natural and real and aspire to reach for the unreachable, to achieve the impossible, to be whoever they were told they couldn't be and have a beautiful Black woman by their sides while they do it all.

I can't even imagine how Michelle is feeling today. Do her daughters, who have grown accustomed to private jets and security and the hoopla, really understand the history being made by their parents? Do we all understand how each and every word Michelle utters will be scrutinized, analyzed and nit-picked to no end by all of their detractors? More importantly, do we know that that doesn't matter and neither Barack or Michelle are worried about what the haters say. They know what they are setting out to do, what they have to accomplish, and I for one, know that Michelle's speech tonight is only going to confirm for all of us why they both belong in the White House.

Michelle, this fist bump is for you...

Aw Daayum...This Shouldn't Be Funny As All Hell...

But it is!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! First of all, this just got my Monday Mornin started on a serious giggle. Secondly, crack is wack people. Crack is wack!!!!!!!!! Lastly, K-Ci and Jo-Jo, memba dem, from Jodeci? Right. Well, they were in Australia doin a show and in mid-song, Jo-Jo passes da fuck out. And he doesn't just like this mofo, falls da fuck out! HAHAHAHA!! Like you hear the microphone thump and his head hit the stage. And then the bodyguard just strolls on stage and walks past him while K-Ci is staring at him and keeps singing!! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL! OMG, I'm cryin as I type this. This shit shouldn't be this funny but its fuckin hysterical! Then the audience members are yelling "Pick him up! Help him!" You see, Jo-Jo is still laid out with the bodyguard standing there and K-Ci still singing. Will somebody help him? Anybody? Clearly this happens er'day...he'll come out of it.

And he does!!!! Jo-Jo manages to come out of his crack induced spell and then he gets up, all by himself mind you, and he is clearly still all kinds of fucked up, and K-Ci is like let's give it up for Jo-Jo and he starts waving Jo-Jo's hand. Oh lord, WHY????? JUST WHY?????!!!!

Just skip to about 1:43 and get to laughin.

Cassie: Official Girl Video....Finally!

On April 11th I let ya'll all know how much I LOVE Cassie's song "Official Girl"...and the damn video didn't come out until, yesterday August 22nd. And is the video worth all this wait? Well I said before if nothing else, Cassie would be gorgeous and that would be enuff to make the video hot...and dammit ta hell, I ain't neva lied!! I can look at this bitch all damn day. She is so fuckin hot!!! And I still love this song -- and I personally don't think Lil Wayne is necessary but he brings his special zsugsh and I ain't mad at it. I did expect the video to have a lil more of a concept, maybe be a lil movie that personified what she was talkin bout (hence why videos are made - yeah, Hence!), but I guess all we need to see is Cassie lookin yummy, cuz she does and I'm in love. Those shoes she is wearin, the bandage joints, in the beginnin are SICK and that car she's drivin is crazy. Well here it is folk, "Official Girl"....enjoy!

P.S. Watchin the video I kept feelin like she's channeling Aalyiah - the one and only Official Girl.

I'm Having A Boris Day

So I have been so behind on my Wendy Williams episodes - like I literally have a whole week I need to zsugsh in order to keep up. Anyway, I came across the interview Wendy did with Boris Kodjoe and just why lord is his so damn fine. Like it's not fair. It's not right that he is that beautiful. He is beyond luscious, beyond scrumptious, beyond just gorgeous as all hell....I don't know what the hell but I just want to thank his mama and his pappa for makin two men that don't have no business being that edible. And sittin next to Wendy, who is a big bitch, he makes her look tiny. He's all big and yummy. OH WHY LORD?! And I just think about how Nicole giggles at all us silly bitches for wishin and knowin we won't never get a wif of that fineness. Sigh....anyway, he was great on Wendy. In part 2 he talks about the tennis tournament he participates in that supports his charity spina bifida. I luh him.

So What?

Pink, one of my favorite white girl rockers, has a new song and video called "So What" and well, me likey. She is basically talkin bout not givin a shit that her marriage is over and she's better off without him....and funny enough, her ex-husband Corey Hart is actually in the video. Made me love it even more.

She goes through all the things you feel like doin when you're hurt and you want to fuck up er'body else who has the nerve to be happy when really you're so sad you feel like settin your hair on fire - she does this.

Pink is crazy and I like her a whole lot. And if this video teaches you nothing, it should teach you to have an ice box and you won't have to know nothin bout such bullshit.

Da Brat Gets Three Years Of Pokey Coochie!!!

Da Brat aka Hello Kitty's personal clit tickla has been sentenced to three years in prison for bashin some chic in the head with a Rum bottle. See, had she beat that bitch with a bottle of Goose the judge would have been more lenient - anybody who requires a bashin by Goose prolly deserved it. People don't just be wastin Goose. But Rum, well see that makes it seem like Da Brat just felt like beatin somebody for no good reason.

Anyway, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

Superior Court Judge Gail Flake also sentenced the rapper, whose real name is Shawntae Harris, to seven years probation and 200 hours of community service.

The incident happened at a Halloween party at Studio 72 nightclub on Oct. 31, 2007. The club is on Ga. 29 near Tucker.

About six members of Harris’s family wept when a sheriff’s deputy took her into custody.

“I love y’all,” Harris, 34, said as she was led out of the courtroom.

“We love you, too,” the relatives replied in unison.

Harris entered a guilty plea to aggravated assault.

The victim, a waitress at the club, had to be hospitalized after being struck by Harris, and Flake said the woman suffered permanent facial scarring.

Harris and the victim had gotten into an altercation prior to the assault, police said at the time."

What is Hello Kitty gonna do??? Douche Cannon don't know how to work it out like Brat do. Mean while, Da Brat is hella happy cuz she is gonna get coochie all day er'day up in the pokey. Those three years are gonna UTI on by.

All For A Good Cause!

For some reason, I only hear Yonce all over this song...I'm kidding! I do hear Melissa Ethridge a lil bit too. No seriously, some of the best female artists - Mariah aka Hello Kitty, Beyonce, Rih Rih, Mary, Keyshia Cole, Melissa Etheridge etc. - got together to record a song called, "Just Stand Up" to support Up To Cancer (SU2C), a new initiative to raise philanthropic dollars for accelerating ground-breaking cancer research.

And lucky for us, we get to see all Divas perform the song live on Friday, Septemeber 5th when ABC, CBS, and NBC simultaneously devote one hour of commercial-free prime-time to this nationwide event. This will be the first simultaneous cross-network broadcast ever to raise funds for the fight against a disease.

To listen to the song click: Can somebody else get on the mic Yonce? Dayum!

And the Kodjoes are speaking out about their daughter and her battle with Spina Bifida. Nicole and Boris wrote us a letter:

Dear Friends,

We hope you are well. We are writing this letter to share with you a most personal issue and ask for your help. As some of you already heard, our little Sophie was diagnosed at birth with Spina Bifida, the most common birth defect in the US, affecting the brain and/or spine in an average of eight babies a day. Degrees of severity vary from quadriplegic children with major brain damage and spinal injuries to cases of neurogenic bladders or even lesser issues.

We were blessed with a miracle child and spared of the more severe symptoms, but Sophie’s spastic bladder still forces us to catheterize her every three hours, day and night, to avoid pressure build up in her bladder and urine backflow into her kidneys. But frequent catheterization causes urinary tract infections, which are then battled with strong antibiotics, which in turn attack stomach flora and cellular balance, cause bowel issues, and that leads to more infections.

It’s a never ending cycle and the prognosis from specialists all over the world is a life long dependency on catheterization and diapers, unless we’d agree to a bladder augmentation, which is quite risky and not a way we want her to live. While being a simple body function for able-bodied individuals, these activities may take hours for children with Spina Bifida.

So after educating ourselves, studying hundreds of domestic and international cases, and researching alternative and traditional methods, our friend Jim Okula at the Spina Bifida Association of GA called us because he came across Dr Xiao from China. Xiao is the first and only person in the world who has developed a procedure of surgically rerouting nerves from the legs to the bladder, providing a new pathway for autonomic stimulation of the bladder, therefore teaching the bladder to empty itself over time.

Dr Xiao has performed this procedure for the past 3 years in China and recently at Beaumont Hospital in Michigan with astonishing results, and now Physicians from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Emory University School of Medicine and Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University, along with the Spina Bifida Association of GA want to bring him to Atlanta to supervise a surgical study including ten children.

This has been Nicole’s and my priority, and now this procedure can change a lot of families’ lives. But the first phase of this surgical study is not funded, and therefore we are in this alone. Based on a successful outcome of phase one, phase two and the surgical study of 100 more children would receive federal funding.

So right now we have to raise $1.88 million to pay for the surgical study involving 10 children. We have included some more information on Spina Bifida and the Xiao Procedure. Please don’t hesitate to write with any questions you guys might have.

As you probably noticed, there’s a big blue ‘DONATE NOW’ button on the welcome page of this site. Please, please, please give as much as you possibly can to help make this a reality for thousands of families and their children affected by Spina Bifida.

We thank you and we love you.

Boris and Nicole

Movie Trailer: The Secret Lives of Bees!

The trailer gave me goose bumps. Set in South Carolina in the 60's, "The Secret Lives of Bees" is the new movie starring Queen Latifah (August Boatwright), Sophie Okonedo (May Boatwright), and Alicia Keys (June Boatwright) who play the intelligent, cultured, and loving sisters who are also beekeepers. Along comes, Dakota Fanning (Lily) with her caregiver Jennifer Hudson (Rosaleen) who is running from her past and finds her way into the home of the Boatwrights.

This movie is based on the best selling book of the same name and is directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood. I am thrilled this movie is coming to big screen and I think the cast is amazing. This one is a MUST-SEE! October 17, 2008!!!

Project Runway: Shocked and RuPauled!!

So I kept my promise and used my new favorite term, shocked and rupauled, just one last time yesterday.... but today is a new day and didn't you know I'm watching Project Runway and it is an episode where the designers are designing costumes for Drag Queens and who is the guest judge....Ru Paul!!! Lookin fierce and fabulous as per usual.

Anyway, I haven't been doin my Project Runway episode re-caps because, well, I just don't have time to do it all. And well, my poodle Christian is now off designing fierce maternity dresses and being fabulous so I don't feel so compelled to watch. HOWEVER, there are three black designers this season, the main reason I have been watching and after last night's episode, I was like it is time to speak on it.




Terri and Korto are dope. Other than Korto's strapless inside out with the seams showing dress that I didn't like, they have both done great work each challenge. They both often end up in the top three of the best that week. I have to say tho, Terri is my favorite. I love her edge, her style and her personality. Korto would be my favorite but she is a bit too sensitive, a lil too cry baby, and a lil too worried about other people's opinions for me.

I want to like Jerell. He is quick with a stank one-liner but other than that, he is BORING me. And as a designer, he should be better than he is and last night, was a big disappointment. He made a corny ass venus fly-trap dress for his drag queen and when the judges told him that it was plain and boring he was like "did you not see that collar pop?" Um, Jerell boo boo, that collar was wackadocious and didn't help that the dress looked like it belonged in the 1923 Broadway rendition of "Anything Goes"...and I would know cuz I played Reno Sweeney in my high school version and my costumes looked oddly similar - and that is in no way a compliment.

Anyhoo, both Korto and Terri had my favorite darg dresses and altho they didn't win they were in the top three. I thought Korto's dragon fire dress was creative, over the top, and perfect for her Queen. Terri's Japanese inspired look was hot and fit for her 7 foot Queen.

I would be shocked if one of these two don't make it to Bryant Park. I don't feel like they have much competition this season. Make it work ladies!

Da Hell?!

Mkay, was I the only one who was not aware that corporal punishment aka ass whippin in school by school officials was legal? Actually, maybe I didn't know cuz its not legal in my state and even it is was, let a teacher had attempted to put a paddle to my ass.

According to a CNN report, "More than 200,000 children were spanked or paddled in U.S. schools during the past school year, human rights groups reported Wednesday.....Corporal punishment in schools remains legal in 21 U.S. states and is used frequently in 13: Missouri, Kentucky, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee and Florida, according to data received from the Office for Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Education and cited in the report.

The punishment is disproportionately applied to black students, according to the organizations. During the 2006-07 school year, for instance, black students made up 17.1 percent of the nationwide student population but 35.6 percent of those paddled at schools.

Black girls were paddled at twice the rate of their white counterparts in the 13 states using corporal punishment most frequently. And although boys are punished more often than girls, the report found that African-American students in general are 1.4 times more likely to receive corporal punishment.

In addition, special education students with mental or physical disabilities were more likely to receive corporal punishment, according to the ACLU and Human Rights Watch."

I can't. I mean we all know that Bernie Mac was more than right when he said that once a kid is old enough to talk back, they old enough to get fucked up BUT that is by a parent and/or family member. Kids do not go to school to get paddled or spanked - granted some of them kids prolly need da ass whippin of a lifetime - however, I don't like that because a teacher is frustrated they can just bust out the paddle and get to beatin. Hell and to da naw. And of course, the black kids get beat more and the teachers prolly use any ol' excuse to beat a black kid.

For example, one mother's son got beat for flickin rubber bands. FLICKING RUBBER BANDS!

"Andrea Cancellare said her then-13-year-old son was paddled -- or "swatted" -- three years ago for flicking rubber bands in class, despite the fact she had written a letter directing school officials in Alpine, Texas, not to use corporal punishment against him. School officials told her they could not find the letter when she complained.

When she approached the principal and superintendent, Cancellare said, they told her that "most parents like this because it takes care of the punishment. It gets the kids back in class. It doesn't disrupt instruction. It's like the quick and dirty way of dealing with discipline problems."

See and then they want to know why people are crazy. I told you don't hit my kid, even wrote it in a letter, now you can't find the letter, and you beat my kid for flickin rubber bands. Where da fuck is my .22?

Are U Watchin Glam God? caught up with Vivica Fox to discuss her new show, Glam God with Vivica A. Fox which premieres tomorrow night (August 21) on VH1.

ESSENCE.COM: Tell us about the show.
FOX: I have a glam panel, and we took 12 stylists and we moved them into a beautiful loft in downtown Los Angeles. We gave them challenges for styling celebrities for red-carpet events. It came from the pages of today’s magazines. Who wore it better? Would you be caught dead in this? People are really fascinated with what celebrities wear. The way you dress can make or break a career sometimes.

ESSENCE.COM: As host of the show, what’s your job?
FOX: I’m kind of like the tough love babe. I let them know [what works] from the celebrity point of view. I also give them the clues for their hot-trend challenges. I’m kinda like Mother Love and say, “Here’s what we gonna do this week, baby.”

ESSENCE.COM: How would you describe your fashion sense?
FOX: I try to dress appropriately. I’m very theme-oriented. I’m very organized. If I’m going to the Oscars, I get a theme in mind. If I’m going to a rock ’n’ roll event, I get something a little edgier. I would say my fashion sense is glamorous, sexy cool.

ESSENCE.COM: Many of the Black women on VH1’s reality show are not always portrayed in a positive light. Did you have any concerns about that for your show?
FOX: Absolutely. It was one of the main reasons why I didn’t want to do a reality show that was TMI. We’re trying to educate the public about fashion and style, while not degrading anyone. The beautiful thing about my cast is that it’s diverse. There’s Spanish, Puerto Rican, Black, White, Asian. Everyone is truly represented.

ESSENCE.COM: You started your career in soaps—“Generations,” “Days of Our Lives,” “The Young and the Restless.” What did you learn on those shows?
FOX: Gosh, to have an excellent sense of memory. I have a memory like an elephant. I retain everything. Soap actors are some of the most underestimated talent. They do five shows a week, memorizing 30, 40 pages of dialogue, hitting their mark, crying, being oiled up sexy in the bed and doing a hair toss, too. That’s a lot to do every day, five days a week. It was like the boot camp of acting for me.

ESSENCE.COM: You’ve starred in numerous TV and film projects. Which are some of your favorites?
FOX: I can name top five, not just one. Definitely “Independence Day” and working with mega-superstar Will Smith. That opened the doors to my career. Everybody and they grandma went to see “Independence Day.” Also, in “Set It Off,” I got to work with Jada (Pinkett Smith), Kimberly (Elise). It was like the little movie that could and it has a cult following. In “Two Can Play That Game,” that was my very first starring role. That was really fun, working with Morris Chestnut and Mo’Nique and Gabrielle (Union) and Bobby Brown. It was a funny movie that I felt elevated Black comedies to another level. It was classy, thoughtful, funny and sexy. Then “Kill Bill.” I got to show everybody how I could scrap for real. I could get down and dirty with ya. I trained for six months for that film. It was the most physically demanding role I’ve ever played. Last but not least, “Why Do Fools Fall In Love?” I loved working with Halle (Berry), Lela Rochon, Larenz Tate, learning about prosthetics and playing a character that was extremely flawed. It wasn’t about the beauty.

I'm looking forward to watchin this show. First of all, you know Viv is gonna be doin waaaaay too much and will have me shocked and RuPauled (I promise that is the last time today) er'episode. I'm also interested in the Stylists. I mean, we have seen how the designs are created on Project Runway, we've seen the designs modeled on ANTM, but we've never seen how the stylist looks for new trends, what's hot and what's not for that particular celeb. I think that is a big problem with'thing ain't for er'body! So, this should be interesting and I'm happy Viv stay wit a job. She gotta pay for that nip, tuck, pull and fluff!

Oh and Vivica listed her top 5 favorite movies that she has been in. I just have to say those top 5 are the best movies she's ever been in, HENCE, them being her top 5. I have to say, Kill Bill is my SHIZZ and even tho Viv is only in the movie for 7 minutes and 45 seconds, I love her fight scene. It jump starts the whole movie and I was pumped that Vivica was in a major production tryna beat Uma Thurmans ass! Love it! But my all time favorite Viv movie has to be Set It Off. That movie was the dopest ever. It is a classic.

Making The Band 4: The Tour

Mkay, so this pic of Danity Kane was taken outside of TRL studios yesterday as the girls made their rounds to pump er'body up for the premier of the third season of Making The Band. Can I just begin with askin does Dawn tuck? I mean, I am shocked and RuPauled by how Trannyliscious Dawn looks. Well actually, I'm not that shocked nor RuPauled - Dawn is good for giving good transgendered face, I just felt like sayin my fave new term that I heard Laverne say on "I Want To Work For Diddy"....but speakin of Laverne, Dawn and Laverne might could be Transgendered Sistas. Altho Dawn is way more fierce - at least in this picture she is. Serrusly. And why does Audrena always look like she hidin walnuts in her cheeks? And Aubrey, please dye your roots and as always, Shannon is just there. What da hell is her purpose and where da hell is D.Woods? I want to look at her bangs.

So now that I've gotten the chance to talk about this picture, now let's talk about the premiere of MTB last night. Danity Kane, Day 26, and Donnie Klang (I really want him to just go by Donnie. Klang is just way too much on the mouth) are back and getting ready to go on their own Making The Band Tour. I'm still confused as to who would pay money to see them in a stadium by themselves. Like it is one thing for them to be opening for some good people but really, no seriously, does anybody even know what Day 26 sings? And um, Donnie's one single was just released and it isn't that great. And really, Danity Kane has some hits off their first album but this new album is a Womp Womp. Thank goodness for "Damaged" cuz there is nothing else to listen to on that album. But somehow, they are goin on tour and let's hope some people show up. Boom Boom Kat didn't come back for her moves not to be seen....

Oh, did I say Boom Boom Kat?! Yes I did! Laurie Ann Gibson aka Boom Boom Kat is back and its not a game. So Day 26 comes into the dance studio ready to learn some new steps and they see Boom Boom Kat sittin in there and they are shocked and RuPauled! They are like stop it, why is Laurie Ann here?! They are all like wait, didn't you and Diddy get into it? You are not supposed to be in here. Boom Boom is like I'm here and I'm not goin no where. Show me watchu workin wit. They show her and she says she is about to have half a cat. They look a mess. Then Q isn't there cuz he got his tonsils taken out and she is like well as far as I'm concerned if he isn't here, he isn't in the group cuz I can't see air. Now hit it!

They finally get over it and let Boom Boom upgrade their choreography, Q comes back against advice from his doctor and his family. And all is well. But then...dun, dun, DUN! Diddy comes in and he asks everybody to clear the room so he can talk to Boom Boom Kat. Boom Boom didn't back down. She let him know that he disrespected her and he let her know that he is the boss - which she never tried not to let him be but there is a way you talk to people. So they went back and forth with that and have to agree to disagree on how things were handled. Then Puff asked Boom if she missed him...the tears started flowin. Her foundation was clearly not water proof. It looks like she had yellow shit drippin from her eyes. But it was a beautiful moment. Water under the bridge. She's back ya'll.

As for the season, I'll be watching for sure, but I'm not sure if I care anymore. If for no reason, I'll just be watchin to see Boom Boom Kat uh-uh, tichah-ah-boom -kat all ova the place.

Again I Ask U, Do Parents Even Exist Anymore?

This VIDEO isn't funny or cute at all. I am beyond disturbed and can't understand where the adults are? JUST WHY DA FUCK would anybody think this is entertaining or acceptable?! I pray er'day for world scrape out....most er'day.

Olympics: Venus and Serena Win Gold!!

Venus and Serena win the doubles gold after beating a team from Spain. I say this er'time but I feel bad for people when they play doubles. Like you just might as well pack up your balls and rackets and go home cuz you have no chance. These two are gonna beast you out and that is just pretty much all there is to it. They won gold in less than an hour, wit the last set takin under 29 minutes. Damn...Gotta love these two! Amazing!!


Wendy's Show Gets A Full Season Zsugsh!!!!

Wendy Williams, who is seriously proving herself to be beyond deserving of her self-appointed title of Queen of All Media has officially been given the green light....The Wendy Williams Show has been picked up for a full season.

I'd like to personally thank Fugorosa who actually did Wendy a favor by showin her ass on Wendy's thought people were gonna give a fuck about you since you "put Wendy in her place on her own show"....well guess what honey, your just as wack as you were before you went on the show. Actually, you're even more of a jackass and I now know why you have been named Provost of Dumb Bitch University. Oh and by tellin people that Wendy definitely has a face for radio....well, as kinda true as that may be Fugarosa, people clearly think that Wendy is a handsome bitch and they love her and want to see her AND hear her er'day. Thanks bitch!!!

You betta work Wendy!!

Solo Playin In A Sandcastle....Disco!

I really love Solange's new video for "Sandcastle Disco." She looks so cute, the video of course, is retro and artsy fartsy, and I just think its a fun song. I will say tho, I could have really done without her in that giant tangerine ensemble....she looks like an orange bird of sorts. Almost as if she flapped those ruffles hard enough she would fly off somewhere. Other than that, loves it!

On A Slow Monday Mornin....

While Amy's brown teefus is more of a concern to me and simply unacceptable, Amy honestly looks like she is a hit away from death. However, we lose people like Bernie Mac who would give anything to be here and live a healthy and happy life. People like Amy Wino purposely slowly kill themselves but manage to live forever and be dirty and gross and still get paid to slur their songs at concerts. Life is so amazing and so complex and just so interesting, isn't it?

How Do We Read Body Language?

Ryan Leslie (29) has been seen on a red carpet or two with super model in the makin, Chanel Iman (18) and the two were seen recently lunchin somewhere...clearly on a date of sorts. My first observation is the fact that they are sitting very far apart from each other....

While Ryan gives a "I'm havin a great time!" smile, Chanel gives a smirk or a side smile of sorts...whatever that expression is, she damn sure ain't havin fun.

Ryan is clearly enjoyin tellin Chanel his story about how he makes that hot shit and er'body in the club be dancin cuz of him. Chanel, who keeps her sunglasses on the entire time, looks like she could care less and is wonderin why da hell his nose is so big.

Ryan may have finally noticed that Chanel is just not that into him and gets serious for a minute. He is askin her if something is wrong. She puts her pinky in her mouth, avoids eye contact, and is wishin she were out on a date with Pharell.

Scene Stealin On The Set Of Miss Independent

So Ne-Yo's new song, 'Miss Independent', has struck a cord with many a independent female...the one who is handlin her own business, takin care of herself and payin her own bills etc. For the video, three of the cutest independent women make appearances; Lauren London, Gabby Union, and Keri Hilson. All three are lookin independently scrumptious while Ne-Yo looks he would much rather be spendin time at the water cooler with Mr. How U Doin.

I may be one of small few who isn't all that pumped about this song. Yeah, I sing it when it comes on the radio, and after lookin at these pics, I'm sure I'll love the video even more. However, I just want to say that I love an ode to women who are doing their thing and taking care of ourselves etc. I, for one, lean a lil more towards Mary J. Blige's words in 'Feel Like A Woman'..."I'm tired of screaming independent. I wanna start depending on you." Women, black women especially, take care of ourselves whether we have help or not, and while it is lovely when men can appreciate that, I am more happy when they let you know that "hey, I know you can pay your car note or your mortgage and can take yourself on a shopping spree, but let me handle that." We can be as independent as we want to be, but I need for men to stand up and play their position. And as Iyanla said, two things can't occupy the same space. There can only be one man. So stay independent ladies, but be sure to let your man be the man. Make sure he eats his Ps.

I Will Remain Uplifting and Pray For Him

Those are words from LisaRaye regarding the split with her Prime Minister of Turks and Caicos husband, Michael. Rockin a short wig, LisaRaye alluded to the rape allegations and the disrespect (READ: him fuckin original recipe Rocsi) and that she was just as surprised to learn of it all like everyone else was. However, she is goin to stay in T&C and continue the work she has planned for the island. And of course, she will remain uplifting and pray for him.

And speakin of weddings, divorces, and all out JUST WHY? I just wanted to share the following:

I could go on for days regarding this out of control hell and to da naw situation but you know what? I'm just going to remain uplifting and pray for her. And him too.
